October 2017 Editor’s Notes

Hello, First Look Friends!

We know things are going to happen in our preschoolers’ lives where they will need God’s help—times when their lives will zig one way and then zag another. We want them to grow up believing that God loves them and can help them anywhere, with anything, no matter how hard it may be. He can even help them help others!

This month, we’ll learn about the life of David and how even when it zigged and zagged, God was there to help him. We will begin with David as a boy in a field with his sheep. David was alone in that field when he needed to protect his sheep. Actually, he wasn’t really alone. God was with him. And, God helped him protect his sheep from the scary lion. Our preschoolers will learn that God can help me anywhere.

Once David had proved that he was brave and strong by protecting his sheep and defeating Goliath, King Saul asked him to lead his troops into battle. Gos was with David and helped him win battle after battle. Our preschoolers will learn that God can help me do anything.

In week three, preschoolers will hear about David’s good friend, Jonathan. David and Jonathan shared so many experiences and were close friends. It was VERY hard when they had to say good-bye to one another. Our preschoolers will learn that God can help me do hard things.

David wants to keep his promise to his good friend, Jonathan, to always take care of his family. He has his servants search until they find Jonathan’s son, Mephibosheth. The servants bring Mephibosheth, who is lame in both feet, to the David, and he provides all that Mephibosheth needs. David even invited Mephibosheth to eat at the king’s table. Our preschoolers will learn that God can help me help others.

We will end the month learning how David praised God after He helped him. David danced and played music to show thanks to God for all His help.  Our preschoolers will learn that we can praise God because He helps us.

We want our preschoolers to grow up knowing that God loves them and is always there to help them—even when they’re in a Zig Zag Zone.

Jaden and Gus are in our clubhouse this month on the Wonder! DVD. They’re getting ready to compete in the Zig Zag Zone! The DVD is available at The Orange Store, and you can even sign up for a monthly subscription. Use this DVD to supplement a live Storyteller and/or Host for the Story section of the curriculum.

October’s Preview Video will be on the First Look website. You can download the video from the matrix—it is located in the Prelude tab. If you’d like to embed the video into your church blog, we have it available on Vimeo. Feel free to share the vision with everyone!

Our team will be praying for you to have moments filled with wonder as you give preschoolers a “first look” at the God who loves them, made them, and wants to be their friend forever.
